Join the workshop By Benoit Ladouceur (Director, Bureau Of Institutional Research, UQAM (Université Du Québec À Montréal)).
The business world can be cutthroat, and your competitors are probably getting rid of risk matrices. Nowhere is informed risk intelligence more important than when you are trying to run an intergalactic empire.
How many Death Stars do you need blown up before you learn that you need both good risk management processes and the appropriate organisational culture in order to not only survive, but to actually thrive?
This presentation will include some tips about bringing folks on board with informed risk taking in uncertain environments and some modelling elements to round things off. The theme may be on the verge of being silly, but the science and the benefits are real.
About the speaker
Benoit Ladouceur, Director, Bureau of Institutional Research, UQAM (Université du Québec à Montréal). Analytical and risk management techniques are important success factors in addressing the major challenges facing our societies, as long as these methods are used ethically and responsibly. Universities play a significant role in creating the world of tomorrow, as well as in training the next generation who will make a difference. Whether through simulations or decision trees, machine learning or statistics, it is necessary to ensure that organizational decision-making is supported by evidence, rigorous methods and a solid understanding of risks. What excites me on a daily basis is working collaboratively to solve challenges, to see people grow and to make things better.
